. this is a heck of a coincidence. the steven spielberg film based on doris good wwin's book on ho t this president ended slavery. the film turned out to be the talk of the political world with special screenings for capitol hill, newspaper editorials come pairing the 1860s to today and pundits expressing renewed respect for the art of the political deal. >> academy award winning director and producer steven spielberg joined us in october along with managing editor, rick st stingel, who devoted and entire article to "what would lincoln do" and the daunting task of becoming the 16th president. >> daniel day-lewis is an extraordinary actor as i'm sure you will agree. and the portrayal of a man i'm sure everyone would put at the top of all presidents. >> he understand people opposed to him and people supporting him. had a deep deep kind of come mun yo ion with all the issues, he was widely criticized for, too slow to come to any decision, too slow to replace mcclellan to general grant and all these things he came under great criticism for and all of a sudden, he is headstrong and hurling down the road

-part conversation about the presidency of barack obama and the next four years joined by doris kearns goodwin, jon meacham, bob woodward, bob caro, and michael beschloss. >> i know it's the consensus that we're -- barack obama has to do is get along with the republicans. i'd like to say something about that. president obama is fond of quoting-- and if he isn't, i am-- martin luther king's statement "the moral arc of the universe bends slowly but it bends towards justice." in the first term, president obama did bend that moral arc. he got health insurance, peace of mind for more than 30 million people. the bill may be floored but it's passed. in the second term i see a sort of differently. everyone's attacking the moral arc of justice-- social security medicare everyone's saying we have to cut it bck. that's the great safety net for the american people. i almost see him as a defender. he has to defend social security and medicare in a fiscally responsible way. >> rose: inaugural day 2013, assessment by journalists and looking forward with historians when we continue. >> rose: today barack obama was

and doris almond. it's a photographic book, "roll, jordan, roll." i believe that is a spiritual, african american spiritual song. >> that's right. >> and this book is considered one of the important photographic books of the 20th century. >> i appreciate you bringing books with american history, with the black history this month. >> yeah. so julia peterkin was an author of pulitzer prize winning author. she wrote books that, about southern history and she married a man who had a plantation in the south and doris almond did the photographs on the plantations in south carolina and almost all the photos are of african americans who were -- many of whom were actual -- had been slaves or were descendents of slaves. and the photos were in a style that might be called pictorialist, a little bit of soft focus images, but very beautifully done. this book itself is the second printing of it and the first trade printing is what this would be called, but it was preceded by a limited edition that is very, very scarce and this would be the first trade edition. >

cohen, would be the next president of the board of supervisors. supervisor kennedy and doris ward, they showed you what to do. good luck and god bless each of you. >> my name is michael -- i want to say welcome to the class of 2013. congratulations for making yourself available and here at city hall. second, i want to point out that two of the nominees need to have a legislative aide if they will be board president, if malia cohen and jane jim would need a third legislative aide. second, all three of the candidates are excellent leaders. i encourage them to two continue their leadership roles. i also encouraged i feel it's important the public process, people need to be included in the community process whether it's the various board committees. it is important to have committee chairs that allow the committee process to happen. this is an important part of city government to include public discussion and allowing people to talk. welcome class of 2013. thank you. >> president: thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is ernestine wise [sounds like]. i want to con

. they included doris kearns goodwin, jon meacham, michael beschloss, robert caro and bob woodward. here is part two of that conversation. doris do you think when those historians met with the president they had any influence on him and what came out of those meetings even though you're not supposed to acknowledge you were there. >> no, you know, i think to go back to what bob said. the fact that you've got a president who reads history means that he's learning from previous presidents. he's not just learning from his first term but the stories and the try alls and the tragedies of previous presidents are in his head. harry truman read a lot of history, teddy roosevelt and so does barack obama and i think that's a really helpful thing. what history will tell you even though there is this second term curse idea, there's no great historic president without a second term. it's a huge opportunity because the country has already legitimized what you did in the first term as complicated as it might be during the recession. they wanted you back again. and now you've got a chance to build the base for t

the other pillars, which my colleagues will take up in order, beginning with dr. chisti. >> thank you, doris. thank you so much and good morning and happy new year to all of you. i'll go as quickly as i can, talk as fast as my natural tendencies. doris, i'll deal with the two pillars. the workplace enforcement and the intersection of criminal justice system and immigration enforcement. on the work force enforcement, doris, as you just heard, refers to 1986 as the dawn of the current era on immigration. for those of us who cut our teeth in the 1986 law and almost all of these members of the panel who is too young, i'm not sure it feels as a compliment. but i think it reminded us that when we do these exercises in legislation making that each sentiment is based on something else. and the whole machinery that we have built today is essentially built on milestones, some of them major and some of them minor. 1986 was a major milestone in america's commitment to immigration enforcement. i think students of immigration history today will not recognize how important philosophically that shift was. b

cacophony that bob is talking about. >> rose: doris kearns joins us from boston. we are taping this on friday in anticipation of the inaugural address on monday and looking at the analysis of what has the not do. from all the second terms of all the presidents that you have known what's the most important lesson that comes out of that. >> i think i'd go back to what bob caro said because i could hear and i think being able to make the country understand that he is framing a debate on the importance of government. that was partly what this whole election was about. i agree there's no part in not giving dignity to the opposition but right now i think he has to play an outside game as well as an inside game. he has to bring the characters to the white house, spend time with the democrats and republicans but the only way i think he's going to have a strategy to move things in the house and the senate is to make the country itself pressure from the outside in. that's when teddy roosevelt had to do because he had a republican party that wouldn't do his bidding so he got the press and
